“Now they had gone on far into the Lone-lands, where there were no people left, no inns, and the roads grew steadily worse. Not far ahead were dreary hills, rising higher and higher, dark with trees. On some of them were old castles with an evil look, as if they had been built by wicked people.” The Hobbit
Free League Publishing today announced Tales From the Lone-Lands, the second expansion for the multiple award-winning 2nd edition of The One Ring Roleplaying Game, based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
The expansion is a fully illustrated hardback compendium containing six brand-new adventures. All are set in the lone-lands of northwestern Middle-earth and the adventures can be played individually, or as part of a larger tale.
The One Ring™ RPG: Tales From the Lone-Lands is a beautifully illustrated hardcover volume.
The expansion includes:
- A Troll-Hole, If Ever There Was One, and Kings of Little Kingdoms are relatively self-contained adventures, but still hint at a growing danger.
- Messing About In Boats involves directly one member of the Company, in an unexpected way!
- Not To Strike Without Need and Wonder of the Northern World follow the slow infiltration of spies of the Enemy.
- The Quest of Amon Guruthos challenges the heroes to battle an ancient evil.
All the adventures in the Tales of From the Lone-Lands expansion assume that the time frame is the same as the one in The One Ring RPG — the years around 2965, or a little more than a decade after the time of The Hobbit.
